So, we learn from Ed Balls that primary school children are to be taught lessons on how to manage their finances, including how to save and budget. Am I the only one to spot the irony of this? We can only hope that the curriculum is left well alone by the Labour Government.
Can you imagine the following question: Your expenses are greater than your income and you are well into your overdraft facility; what do you do; a) try to reduce your expenses; b) spend a lot more?
It’s a pity such lessons were not in place at Gordon Brown and Alistair Darlings primary schools!
